Southmost Nature Trail Reviews

Nice walking path

If you’re looking for a nice walking path (on a sidewalk), this is it. We accessed it from Burton Drive (see picture). Most of the path goes along the canal. The first 2/3 of this walk is a nice setting. After E 30th Street, (toward the end of the path), the path goes right along the backs of houses where are there are some large loud dogs in fences.

Nice concrete paths

My husband and I took our three kids on this path on our online skates. We parked at the school. The start of the trail was just around the corner. We were a bit nervous skating by the busy street with the kids to get to the trail. We were impressed with the smooth concrete path — perfect for skating! The path itself followed a canal (not exactly scenic, but we did see a few water birds). The first part of the trail went behind a residential area. The houses had fenced yards, but many of them had angry barking dogs. The trail crossed the canal with a nice bridge, then crossed a busy street. Crossing the street on skates with the kids wasn’t ideal, but I can imagine it would be fine for pedestrians. The rest of the trail was very nice. It was farther away from the residential area and there were several nice covered picnic areas. We skated happily to the end of the trail where it ended at another busy street. We turned around and skated back to our car. There wasn’t much shade along the trail. We were there between 5 pm and 6 pm. There were about a dozen others enjoying the trail. Thank you!
